Though deliciously rude and crude, '3, 2, 1 ... Frankie Go Boom' possesses a surprisingly sweet heart.
A noisy stab at wacky wrongness that starts with reasonably plump possibility as a dispatch from the frontlines of viral video embarrassment hell.
A vibrantly vulgar comedy that never hangs around to admire its own cleverness.
Tragically unfunny, Frankie is occasionally elevated by some of its gifted and game cast, but the film's nasty, comedically incoherent script limits its potential.
Both actors somehow stay grounded despite all the shenanigans. Hunnam, in particular, is quite adept at playing against his movie-star looks.
Provided one submits to its base level of intentional ridiculousness, there's some wacky charm to be found in this low-budget comedy of fraternal bickering.
... provides a few solid sitcom-style laughs before the bickering and mayhem become repetitive and the film simply runs out of gas.
It's unbearable to sit through at times, watching decent actors flounder with intentionally ridiculous material, working themselves into a lather to serve writer/director Jordan Roberts's clumsy sense of humor.
The image of [Perlman] in makeup and a wig, painting his toenails, is a terribly easy joke, but it's the best one this otherwise abrasive comedy can manage.
